Last Tuesday, Kentucky quarterbacks coach Darin Hinshaw spoke to SEC Country’s Kyle Tucker about Wright’s situation.
“He’s going through some tests right now,” Hinshaw told Tucker. “This is something that never has happened to him — or in his family — so it’s a little unique situation. They’re making sure, ‘Why did it happen? Why did he have a seizure?’ and all those kind of things. We should get some results back in the next couple days on what the situation was. It might’ve just been a freak situation or it might be something that they have to address.”
Wright completed 3 of 4 passes for 28 yards as a redshirt freshman last season. He has yet to attempt a pass this year.
Kentucky is 5-1. The Wildcats play at Mississippi State on Saturday.
